Change and innovation have become a constant for primary care practices and specialists within their medical neighborhood, with multiple large-scale efforts underway that will transform the way that we deliver care for our patients.
Practice transformation is a continuous and long-term process and a cornerstone of healthcare reform in alignment with payment reform. It is based on the concept that practices become learning organizations that are willing to test different work flows or office systems and continue to reiterate change.
The main concepts of practice transformation include implementation of continuous quality improvement, engaged leadership, empanelment, developing continuous and team-based healing relationships with patients, evidence-based care, patient-centered interactions, enhanced access, and care coordination, to name a few.
The Practice Innovation Team at CU is involved in multiple projects related to practice transformation and is committed to supporting the advancement of comprehensive primary care to improve patient experience and quality of care while decreasing costs.
Over a period of four years, the Practice Innovation Program and its partners have worked with more than 800 healthcare sites across the state of Colorado to provide better care and ensure healthier lives for their patients through their participation in SIM, TCPi, ENSW and IT MATTTRs.
